Poll: Majorities of Black and White People Think They Get Along Just Fine
by Eddie Scarry | 4:15 pm, August 25th, 2014

Amid the hysteria over the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., it might be lost that most black and white Americans believe they’re not out to get each other.

A new Pew Research survey shows that 75 percent of whites and 64 percent of blacks say their groups get along together “pretty well” if not “very well.”

It’s a bleaker view for Hispanics, 53 percent of whom say the same.

Ferguson fell into the national media spotlight on Aug. 9 when Brown, who was unarmed and black,” was shot dead by Darren Wilson, a white police officer.

A St. Louis grand jury is currently deliberating whether to charge Wilson of a crime.
